While Disney has Mickey Mouse, Universal Studios has the Grinch! During the Christmas holiday season don’t miss Grinchmas, staring the Grinch himself and the folks from Whoville.
Who doesn’t love the holiday classic, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”? If your kids are fans, head to Orlando this December to see the story performed live at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.
The performance includes a wonderfully whimsical version of Whoville, all your favorite Whoville residents, amazing costumes, and of course, the Grinch himself. The action is accompanied by the music of Mannheim Steamroller.
After the show you can shake the hand of the Grinch himself and get his autograph. Then see the Whoville folks walking around selling Christmas candy and posing for pictures. How the Grinch Stole Christmas show is performed several times each day.
Islands of Adventure will be all decorated for Christmas, with lots of trees, lights, “ice and snow,” and other decorations. Watch the tree-lighting ceremony that will get everyone into the holiday spirit. There’s no extra charge to watch the Grinchmas show – it’s included with your admission ticket to the theme park.
Breakfast with the Grinch is another cool holiday tradition at Islands of Adventure you can get in on. You’ll have lot of tasty food to choose from.
For a real treat, begin your holiday adventure at Universal with breakfast at Confisco Grille. While you’re enjoying all the breakfast goodies from the buffet, the Grinch and his pals will be mingling with guests. You can get the Grinch’s autograph and even have your picture taken with him! Wouldn’t that make a great Christmas card?
